The Museo de Arte Precolombino Felipe Orlando was created in 2005. It is named for Felipe Orlando, a very rich Mexican art lover who lived in the Costa del Sol for a long time. His father gave him an inheritance of a very large collection of Pre-Colombian art. Since Mr. Orland was a close friend of the mayor of Benalmadena, he decided to leave his collection to the city and the city built the museum to house the collection. The items on display are very well explained and they come from Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, and Nicaragua. There is also an archaeological section in the museum that has many Roman artifacts found on the coast.
